great value for money
was not sure what to expect but pleasantly surprised, had a large bright room comfy bed great shower and a hearty breakfast brilliant value for the money, the staff were very friendly made you feel welcomed.
Easter break in Poole, disappointing!!!
The room was number 11, the bathroom floor needed relaying, the sink needed replacing as it was badly cracked, the room was too small for a double, really just big for a single room, unless you took out the long dressing table which I kept banging myself on when I got out of bed.
The bed was old, hard, and you could feel the springs. The Windows would not open, only managed to open one for about 4 inches, must be very hot in the summer. Back to the bathroom, the glass shelf is on the wrong position, so is the towel rail, if you open the shower door too quick you would probably break the door as it would bang on it. The decoration was dated and tired, one good thing was the sheets etc where clean and fresh!
